Forest overview

The fight against climate change

  • Trees that are processed into wood products generate important benefits for the environment, since they continue to store carbon, which is the main constituent of greenhouse gas.
  • Every cubic metre of growing forest absorbs one metric ton of CO2.Trees store carbon (C) and release oxygen (O2), purifying the air. Wood is composed of 50% carbon.
  • One cubic metre of wood used in construction can remove 0.9 metric tons of CO2 from the atmosphere
